Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity

Divine Revelation

{8:6} And the seven Angels who hold the seven trumpets prepared themselves, in order to sound the trumpet.
{8:7} And the first Angel sounded the trumpet. And there came hail and fire, mixed with blood; and it was cast down upon the earth. And a third part of the earth was burned, and a third part of the trees was entirely burned up, and all the green plants were burned.
{8:8} And the second Angel sounded the trumpet. And something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast down into the sea. And a third part of the sea became like blood.
{8:9} And a third part of the creatures that were living in the sea died. And a third part of the ships were destroyed.

My interpretation: The tribulation is divided into seven Seals, representing sets of events. The seventh Seal is divided into seven Trumpets, again symbolizing events. The first six Seals:

1. first horseman: World War 3 (Arab/Muslim nations invade and conquer Europe)
2. second horseman: severe civil disorder and violence
3. third horseman: a worldwide famine, more severe in wealthy nations
4. fourth horseman: death and the fear of death from various causes, including disease

5. a great martyrdom of Christians, mostly in Europe

6. World War 4, an all-out nuclear war between the U.S. and the extremists occupying Europe. This war results, a short time later, in the event of the third Trumpet, nuclear fallout.

7. the Seventh Seal is divided into seven Trumpets

First Trumpet: a great comet, broken into pieces, falls to earth. A comet is frozen, like hail, but it burns with fire as it falls through the atmosphere. Hail occurs in many pieces, so the comet must be broken. The blood symbolizes the vast destruction and death caused by fire falling from the sky. A third part of the surface of the land is burned by the comet fires, and a third of the trees. The sky is darkened by the smoke from the vast fires, causing crops to fail worldwide (‘all the green plants’).

Second Trumpet: one large piece of the comet falls into the ocean, causing great destruction from tidal waves and earthquakes worldwide. This impact also throws vast amounts of water and particles into the upper atmosphere, becoming a partial cause (with World War 4) for the nuclear winter which is the fourth Trumpet.

Private Revelation

visionary Pedro Régis: “Blood will fall from above and fire will flow on waters.” (Message 3260 from Our Lady of Peace, Anguera, Brazil; 01/01/2010)

My interpretation is that pieces of a broken comet will fall to earth, on the land, causing many deaths. The expression that blood falls from above is figurative, just as in Revelation 8:7. The pieces of the comet also fall on water, giving rise to the expression ‘fire will flow on waters’.

Sister Agnes Sasagawa: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.” (Akita at

The above prophecy is not figurative, and does not require much in the way of interpretation. Our Lady of Akita was referring to the same event as in Revelation: the First and Second Trumpets.

Saint Hildegard: “Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine…. The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. All sea coast cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of those cities does a person live according to the laws of God.” (Fr. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 139-140.)

Again, we have a reliable prophecy that speak of great destruction, this time explicitly stating that the destruction is caused by a comet.

This event occurs as part of the set of events called the seven Trumpets of the seventh Seal. The first six Seals must occur first, so this terrible event does not occur soon. Its timing will be very clear, since six severe sets of events occur beforehand. Also, the approach of a large comet will not be a surprise; scientists will be able to predict its arrival years in advance. I believe that the year of the comet is 2038.

Much, much more on the events of the first part of the tribulation (the first six Seals and the first six trumpets of the seventh Seal) is found in my book: The First Part of the Tribulation available in paperback and in Kindle format.

Comet Tempel 1

I believe that this great comet is Comet Tempel 1, which will pass near Jupiter from late 2023 to early 2025. See animated graphic below (Source)

Although the comet’s current orbit keeps it outside of the earth’s orbit, its close pass by Jupiter (2024) might cause it to break apart, and might change its orbit enough so that it will collide with earth about the year 2038. It would be particularly fitting if the comet that causes such great destruction on earth is one with which humanity interfered. Comet Tempel 1 was struck with a large copper impactor in NASA’s Deep Impact mission. The harm that comes to humanity is mainly a result of our own arrogance and sinfulness. The name of the Comet, ‘Tempel’ (the discoverer’s last name, but similar to the word ‘Temple’), is also fitting, since this event is part of the plan of God.

1 Response to Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity

  1. Dr. Dave says:

    Dear Ron,

    When I first heard of the Deep Impact Mission a few years back and saw the incredible pictures of that impact my first thought was that this was secular scientist’s calculated plan to interfere with God’s plan. It occurred to me that those who detest God and His creation know as much as you do about the possible role of Tempel 1and the book of Revelation and actually tried to disrupt this particular comet. I can’t prove this, of course, but the whole idea of sending a space probe out to do what it did seemed rather juvenile. I always wondered if the results were disappointing to those behind the scene. Thanks for your post. I am always thrilled to see God’s handiwork in every place and in every time.

    In His Divine Will,
